This week’s lineup is truly color-rich, from ruby-red rhubarb and green asparagus to purple Huckleberry Gold potatoes, rainbow Swiss chard and a plethora of spring greens and pungent herbs. Accompanying this bright roster are all the ingredients you need to finish off a spring feast: Spring ramps, locally-foraged Morel mushrooms, Grana-style cheese and Arborio rice for risotto, plus Italian Rustica bread, farm-fresh eggs and a ripe and fruity French Rosé.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Much like the autumn leaves bursting into brilliant shades of orange, scarlet and yellow, our gardens continue to grace us with colorful produce, from Acorn squash and broccolini to crisp-tart apples and spicy, peppery greens. Celebrate this beautiful bounty with a rich, warm risotto made with both our housemade duxelles and fall Cremini mushrooms, plus Pain au Levain bread and all the ingredients for a blue cheese and candied pecan spinach salad to serve alongside.
